What is T’ai Chi Chih?:
A moving meditation consisting of 19 gentle movements and one pose. T’ai Chi Chih (TCC) is a new form of Qi Gong discipline; that is, one that is concerned with the development, circulation, and balancing of the energy force within your body (Chi). Chi is commonly accepted as the universal connection that binds us all together. Unlike T’ai Chi Ch’uan (or any other martial art), TCC is easy to learn, has no age limitation, and does not require a particular level of coordination or physical fitness. For students with physical limitations, the movements of TCC can be modified to be performed seated or by visualization in the mind. No special clothing or equipment is required. The soft and gentle movements have an almost immediate positive effect on the circulatory and immune systems. Through regular daily practice, the benefits experienced by students are as diverse as the students themselves.

About Tim Bonis (Accredited T’ai Chi Chih Instructor):
I attended my first T’ai Chi Chih (TCC) class in 2015 during a mental and emotional growth period. I experienced that this moving meditation allowed me to more effectively manage life stressors while decreasing my anxiety. Although my practice did not become consistent initially the results of TCC practice became undeniable and motivated me to engage in a committed daily practice. Through moving and circulating the Chi (energy force within your body) I became inspired to share the joy through movement with others. Through teaching I have discovered a deeper practice and connection with myself and others.
